The Women Run Arkansas Running/Walking Club is hosting the 16th annual "Women Can Run"[more] running and walking clinics, including a clinic in Bryant. The clinic will begin at 5:30 p.m. on March 6 and participants will meet at the Bryant High School track. The clinic will meet twice a week at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays.
The 10-week training clinics are for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced runners and walkers and will culminate with a 5K run/walk graduation event on May 11 in Conway. By the end of the training clinic each participant will be able to run, run/walk or walk a 5K (3.1 miles).
There is no charge for the clinic training; however, there is a $20 fee for the 5K graduation event, which is the goal of the clinic participants. The $20 covers entry for the 5K, which will also include a T-shirt and other goodies. The $20 is used to help cover the expense of the clinics and the 5K event plus a portion of every entry is donated to a charitable organization of the club’s choice. All clinic directors and leaders volunteer their time for the 10-week training period.
“Come on and join in the fun with other ladies learning to walk and run,” said Carol Waddle, the director for the Bryant clinic. “You will make new friends and possibly meet someone to walk and run with on a continuous basis, even after the training period and 5K. This is your opportunity to do something for yourself and start a lifestyle that will benefit you the rest of your life.”
